Your expertise will be key in raising awareness of the charity by engaging with patients, management and staff, members, volunteers and the local community. Much of our work involves the consideraton and approval of applications for charitable funds which will enable many interesting and vital projects from a variety of hospital departments and disciplines. You will need to be sensitive, thoughtful and pragmatic as we often communicate with patients and their relatives, when dealing with donations and legacies left to the The Friends of York Hospital.
